About Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition where a person suffers from excessive sweating. Now, most people sweat a lot in certain conditions, and that’s natural. If you sweat loads while exercising or walking around in hot weather, that’s a normal bodily response. However, hyperhidrosis is when you sweat an abnormal amount in normal conditions. It’s far more than most people will sweat, and you usually end up with stains on your clothes and body odor constantly. 

This condition can cause a lot of social anxiety as you feel embarrassed by how much you sweat. Not only that, it can have some potential health implications as excessive sweating makes you more prone to dehydration. Thankfully, Dr. Brenman and his team offer an exclusive treatment for this condition!

miraDry® for Hyperhidrosis 

Typically, hyperhidrosis may be treated with antiperspirant products. However, this might not provide the results you’re hoping for, and you may have a reaction to the extreme chemicals in the products. Instead, miraDry® treatment offers a natural, non-invasive, and toxin-free solution. 

With miraDry®, a special handpiece is used to help destroy the sweat and odor glands under your armpits. To begin, Dr. Brenman will use a numbing gel on your underarms and wait for it to kick in. Once you’re numb, he uses the miraDry® handpiece and applies it to the armpit area, where it lightly sucks up your skin. This is done to move the glands and skin closer to the device, allowing for optimal performance. After this, patented miraWave energy is applied to the area, heating up the glands and destroying them. At the same time, the miraDry® device also provides a cooling sensation to your skin, reducing any irritation. 

By the end, you will no longer have functioning sweat or odor glands in your armpits. These glands don’t grow back, so the results last forever!

Benefits of miraDry®

miraDry® treatment offers many benefits for people suffering from hyperhidrosis. For one, it’s a non-invasive treatment and includes absolutely no chemicals at all. This means your skin won’t suffer the same reactions that it would to a high-strength antiperspirant. 

Most importantly, miraDry® is proven to work and lasts a lifetime. The sweat and odor glands are gone forever, and the results are immediate. It’s a treatment that lasts around an hour, and you have no downtime to worry about. You’ll see a dramatic reduction of underarm sweat, letting you live a more confident and stress-free life.
